Is bandwidth used when moving files from computer to network drive

So I have a a hard drive that is connected my router and shows up as a network location in My Computer. I was wondering if my bandwidth is used when I'm transferring files back and forth from my network drive and my laptop? How about watching videos from my network drive on my laptop?

Thank you for reading.

Do you mean bandwidth from your ISP?
No. It uses bandwidth but your private network has unlimited bandwidth...

Yes, I mean the bandwidth from my provider. I only have 60GB per month.
So, it uses my private bandwidth...? Are you sure?

Only data from the Internet would deduct from the bandwidth allowance your ISP provides.
